A very exciting 0.4 inches of water in the rain gauge this morning in drought plagued Norcal, and the calming sound of raindrops pattering on the roof on a Sunday morning. Looks like we had one of the the highest rainfall totals on the California coast south of San Francisco this morning.

After a year and 15,000 miles of driving an electric Nissan Leaf, we finally sat down and ran the numbers for how much we're paying for electricity. The bottom line, if you're a +Pacific Gas and Electric Company customer and have an EV rate and pay attention to the times of day you use power, is a lot. I figure I saved about $133 over the roughly 1,200 miles I drove in November. It costs me about 5 cents a mile to drive the Leaf, for the combination of home and public charging that I do.

Cool image of the first photo taken of the Earth and the moon in one frame, by the Voyager 1 spacecraft that NASA announced last week has left the solar system and traveled into interstellar space.

The gradual escalation of the horror of this new video of the Japan tsunami in 2011 is partly what makes it so powerful.
